That’s So Gay! Challenging Homophobic Bullying
A practical guide to making your school a safer place and creating an inclusive bully-free culture. It shows what homophobic bullying looks like, who experiences it and explores the reasons why young people bully others homophobically. It also reveals why young people are often reluctant to report homophobic bullying, the increasing role played by the internet and the profound effects bullying can have well into adulthood.
Adopting a whole-school approach, this book provides all the advice schools need on prevention, working with those who bully, supporting targets of such bullying, handling disclosures and anti-bullying policies.
Written by EACH’s Executive Director, Jonathan Charlesworth this is a vital guide for schools, teachers and anyone with a duty of care towards young people.
